... the Encore Trench. Wore it for the first time yesterday. Verified it is a special trench. And it gives the feeling of a cool spy. Now I have "Secret Agent Man" going in my personal jukebox.
Speaking of undercover agents, we watched Salt with Angelina Jolie the other night. Just as her slit-up-to-there suit would so not be what federal agents wear to work (I think not but what do I know!), this trench is so not the no-nonsense trench. Thus, perfect for Angelina to wear in the sequel, don't you think?
IRL, I tend to think of trench weather as being rather trecherous. Not sure how the what seems like miles of skirt of the Encore Trench would do in real weather with whipping winds. A little wind, however, would be all the better to show off the tulle underskirt. Yes, the trench has an underskirt of two layers of tulle (I cannot do better than the Bourbon and Pearls pic). It's a delicious detail that brought back a memory from when I was a very, very young girl.
I must have been between 3 and 5 years old and I was to carry the skirt of the wedding dress of an aunt (?? ... I was so young I didn't understand who it was getting married and guessing). I recall taking the job very seriously but it was such a difficult task because the skirt was a mountain of tulle. In my memory bank, the skirt looked like this:
You can just imagine a tiny girl trying to keep the skirt off the ground, and helping to get all that tulle into the car. Life was stressful even back then.
But my favorite memory of that day was being fascinated with the princess I was attending to.
I can understand why Dani fell in love with the trench and how she might have purchased it at full price. It's a small price to pay to become a princess.
